New ad features single mother discussing the benefits of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act for working families

WASHINGTON – The Congressional Leadership Fund (@CLFSuperPAC), the super PAC endorsed by House Republican leadership, today released its latest television ad in the special election in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district, “Mary Beth.” The ad features Mary Beth, a single mother from Monroeville, who explains that the benefits of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act are not “crumbs,” and that every dollar helps when raising a family.

“Not only does Conor Lamb continue to side with Nancy Pelosi over Pennsylvania families, he also continues to mock hardworking families by calling a $2,900 tax cut ‘crumbs,’” said Corry Bliss, CLF Executive Director. “For families like Mary Beth’s, this much-needed tax relief is welcome news because every dollar counts when raising a family. By mimicking Nancy Pelosi’s offensive talking points, Conor Lamb continues to show he is out of touch and too liberal for PA-18 families and their values.”

CLF has invested over $2 million in television advertising to date ahead of PA-18’s special congressional election, and is executing an aggressive ground game in the district. In early January CLF opened two field offices in Pennsylvania’s 18th congressional district with 50 full-time door knockers, who will make 250,000 voter contacts in door-to-door efforts by Election Day in March.

MARY BETHFour and a half years ago I lost my husband.

Being a widow is tough.

Raising two teenage sons by myself is even harder.

That’s why I really appreciated the middle-class tax cut.

Conor Lamb and Nancy Pelosi called it crumbs.

Here’s the truth, Mr. Lamb.

When you’re a single mom and everything falls on your shoulders, every dollar counts.

Conor Lamb and Nancy Pelosi are out of touch.

He’s not one of us.
